Bit o' discussion in this thread:

http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1298875

Maybe have a look at this and the references contained within: http://myslu.stlawu.edu/~msch/sports..._NHL_Draft.pdf

I'm not sure anyone's really nailed an effective 'measure' of success or failure. For example, Scott Cullen's weighting here http://www.tsn.ca/blogs/scott_cullen/?id=398986 I think slightly inflates the lower pick values by assigning a reasonably high value to good or okay minor leaguers - which are essentially a failure for an NHL team in the 1st round..
